'He can help us' - Leeds United star speaks on Adryan

Adryan has been backed by Giuseppe Bellusci to make an impact for the first team.

Leeds United fans are intrigued to see the impact new signing Adryan can have on the first team, with the Brazilian tipped to make his debut against Rotherham on Friday night.

They are not the only one, for he has the trust of his fellow players too, specifically Giuseppe Bellusci.

The centre-back this week told reporters joining Leeds was the 'best decision of his life', continuing to win over the Elland Road faithful.

Adryan however has not yet had his chance, playing only under-21 games to date.

Teammate Bellusci believes he will be able to successfully make the step up, for the benefit of the whole club.

He told Tuttomercatoweb, in an interview published on Thursday: "He is a player who has not yet had a chance to prove himself in the league.

"We hope he will soon give us a hand.

"We have so many good players as Antenucci, Silvestri, Bianchi. Adryan we expect to be also." 

Adryan was left out of the under-21 squad this week, hinting at potential involvement for the first team, either from the start or the bench.
